An apprentice paint technician from Fix Auto Birmingham East has been named as a finalist for a major regional training award.
Adam Wilson, who has worked for the repairer for two years, has had his skills recognised with a nomination as a finalist for the South and City College of Birmingham Automotive Apprentice of the Year.
The teenager, who lives in Coventry but commutes to the Birmingham bodyshop daily, will be joined by Fix Auto Birmingham East Operations Director Ben Healey and a whole host of prominent business figures and dignitaries at the prestigious awards ceremony, to be held at the city’s Macdonald Burlington Hotel on Friday, March 11.
Ben, said: “Adam is a super lad who clearly has a passion for the job which is showing in the quality of work he is turning out for us. He has embraced his college course with great enthusiasm which, combined with his fine skills, singled him out to his lecturers who put his name forward for the award.
“Being nominated as a finalist is an award in itself and we are all extremely proud of Adam and his achievement. Fingers crossed, he’ll go one step further and be presented with the overall honour of being named Apprentice of the Year.”
Adam, who started his studies at a college in Coventry but transferred to South and City College of Birmingham to further advance his studies and skills, added: “I’ve loved cars for as long as I can remember and have always wanted to work in the industry in some way. When I left school working as a paint technician and in a bodyshop appealed to me.”
